Soda (diet or regular) linked to heart risks

Last blog I told you McDonald's wants to sell you a soda the size of Siberia.

Now researchers from Boston University's School of Medicine finds a link between all sodas -- diets and sugar-laden -- and increased heart disease risks. (The author of the study emphasized the findings don't show diet sodas are a cause of increased heart disease. But cigarette makers have argued for years that cigarettes don't cause cancer either.)

Without a definitive explanation, researchers offers only this advice to diet soda drinkers: "consume in moderation and stay tuned for more research."

I'd say if you are serious about your health stay away from colas.
